ok, so then who makes ATI branded cards?

This is the fourth time or so I've said this. Sapphire Technologies manfactures all of ATI's own branded cards as well as their own line.

It's not bad...I heard some reviews about it and it's decent. I don't like how Arctic Cooling uses cheap black snap-on plastic for the covering...makes it look cheaper than it should. My biggest complain is with the way they designed the fan to blow. What's this with the hot air going INTO the motherboard?! They must've been high when designing this.

That's why I bought the Zalman VF900-Cu instead. Great build quality, quiet and makes the card look gorgeous.

I think the X1950 cooler is the sexiest out of all of them. But i like the base of the VF-900.

Yeah, I like how the X1950 uses the Arctic Cooling concept of blowing the air out directly. It should be very quiet.

Oh and yes, the VF900-Cu's base is SO nice. It's literally a mirror.
